This Roasted Tomato Toast with Ricotta is made with a handful of simple ingredients - grape tomatoes, olive oil, fresh garlic, and herbs atop toasty, thick-sliced Italian bread with creamy ricotta cheese. It's the perfect way to use up all those ripe summer tomatoes from the garden!
You'll Love This
- The flavors are seriously outrageous. And that is coming from someone who's not a HUGE tomato fan. In this tomato toast recipe the tomatoes are roasted just enough to take away the raw flavor (that's the part I'm not a huge fan of) AND they're infused with fresh garlic, olive oil, and herbs. They soak up all that deliciousness while roasting and then they are literally bursting with flavor.
- It's perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I like to make this is as a quick lunch when I don't have tons of time. But it tastes AMAZING with a runny fried egg on it as well - perhaps served with a side of roasted potatoes or hash browns for brunch. Or you can serve it alongside a hearty green salad with a glass of white wine for a simple vegetarian dinner!
- It's super quick and easy! We are talking just a few minutes of prep and then it's into the oven. All you've got to do is slice the garlic and add it to the tomatoes along with some olive oil and herbs. Give it a quick toss and then it's time to roast!
Place tomatoes into a small baking dish. Add olive oil, sliced garlic, oregano, and a large pinch of salt. Stir to combine.
Roast bread and tomatoes for 8-10 minutes, flip bread. Roast for another 5 minutes.
Divide ricotta evenly between toasts.
Then divide tomatoes evenly between toasts.
Sprinkle each toast with Kosher salt and garnish with fresh arugula and chopped parsley if desired.
- This tomato toast recipe works well with grape tomatoes that are past their prime. Even if they're a bit wrinkled and looking a little sad, the quick toss of olive oil and roast in the oven will plump them up and bring them back to life!
- Use whole milk ricotta for these tomato toasts! Part-skim will work if that's all you've got on hand, but whole milk ricotta has more fat and as we all know, fat equals flavor!
- A good quality olive oil is going to go a long way in bringing extra flavor to this super simple recipe. Because the ingredient list is so short, it's important to use high-quality olive oil. You don't have to spend $50 on a bottle. Just look for something that is cold-pressed and organic. Then try a few different kinds until you find the flavor you enjoy the most!
